April Fool’s Fun

Alex woke up this morning and declared that “It was April Fool’s Day”. I asked him “So what does that mean, Alex?” Alex’s response? “I have to go to school today and play tricks on my friends.”. 🙂 He then proceeded to try and tell me there was a spider on my head. Sorry, kid, I’m onto you!

This is really Alex’s first April Fool’s Day since we had not told him the concept in the past. I figured by now he would have learned it at school, so I planned a special April Fool’s Day dinner, with a little help from Olya’s friend Erica, who made two of the three items last year for her family.

So we had cupcakes, french fries and juice for dinner:

Meatloaf Cupcakes

French Fries (I forgot to get a picture of this before we ate all of it! I just did the top part, and put a few “fries” on everyone’s plate with their own little cup of “ketchup”.

Jello Juice

I succeeded in tricking all three of them with the Juice. Beth kept sucking at her straw. Then she’d stop and say “Mmm, Juice” even though she wasn’t getting anything out of the straw! I couldn’t stop laughing at her. She had to have done that at least 5 times. 🙂 It took Alex a few tries to figure it out as well and by then, Eric was laughing with me because he had figured it out. Eric got suspicious about the cupcakes since the liners were falling off. But I don’t think he figured out the fries until he ate one, though. Alex didn’t figure out the fries and it took a lot of coaxing to get him to try the cupcakes. But the Jello Juice made it all worth it. I’m looking forward to next year. 🙂
